Terrain: Moderate in most places / Difficult in some stretches since some rock climbing is involved. The heat too makes it tough. But trail gets cool and easy once you are over the top.

Nagala is a village about 90kms North East of Chennai in the Chittoor District. Its the start of the Deccan Plateau. Though it looks dry from far, once you climb up the cliff and go over the top trekkers will be amazed to see how much greenery and water is available on the top. This is one of the rare places in South India where there is water all through the year. The trek will also have some rocky cliffs to climb, open to sun in some areas. The route is about 14 kms and we return via the same route. Possibility of bathing in the mini waterfalls and swimming in the cool ponds is an option (Only for persons who know swimming and also have flotation devices).
